Dear South Holland School District 151 Families and Community Members,
Happy 2019! As we enter the second half of the school year, we are excited to see the growth that our students have already made. Our district theme for this year is “Level UP!” Our teachers, staff and administrators have been working diligently to take everything we do to the next level. We are helping our students reach higher standards and engaging them in reading, writing, listening, speaking, problem-solving and planning more than ever before in every grade level and subject area. By leveling up our expectations and the activities we do with students, we are preparing our students for their future in college, career, leadership and life.
This year, our students in grades 5 through 8 are beginning a one-to-one technology initiative. Through the leadership of our Board of Education and a grant from T-Mobile, all of our students in grades 5 through 8 will have use of a laptop and internet access. This initiative will allow us to expand our students’ access to technology and our use of computers as learning tools throughout the school day and when students are at home. We are excited for the many opportunities this initiative will provide for our students.
South Holland School District 151 continues to look toward the future and plan for our children. Our Board of Education has created a team of community members, parents and staff members to help them analyze the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of the district and identify future initiatives and goals to meet the needs of our students. The District 151 Strategic Planning Team is actively working to draft a new Strategic Plan to guide the progress of the district for the next five years. The new plan will be approved by the Board of Education and shared with the community in Spring 2019.
Thank you to all of the members of the Strategic Planning Team for all of their hard work and commitment to the district and thank you to the staff members, administrators, parents and students who help to make our district a place Where Young Minds Grow!
Dr. Teresa Hill
